3.       Communication from the Chairman

 

3.1      Award for Presentation - Planning Institute of Australia (Tasmania)

            “Hobart: A community vision for our island capital”

 

The City of Hobart was recently recognised for two projects at the Planning Institute of Australia (Tasmania) awards presentation evening.

The City of Hobart and The20 received a ‘Commendation’ for the project “Hobart: A community vision for our island capital” in the “Public Engagement and Community Planning” category.

The Commendation was received for the engagement process which culminated with a Community Panel, a group of 46 community members and business people from across the city. The panel used the feedback collected throughout the process, as well as information from 59 subject matter experts, to draft a vision statement and outcomes across eight pillars, or areas of focus for city life.

 

The Lord Mayor presented the award to the meeting.

 

3.2      Award for Presentation - "SPECULATE: Collaborative place-based research 2012-2019"

 

An ‘Award’ was presented to the City of Hobart and University of Tasmania (Architecture and Design) in collaboration, for the project “SPECULATE:  Collaborative place-based research 2012-2019” in the category “Cutting Edge Research and Teaching”.

Speculate represents a significant series of innovative projects over a seven-year period embracing a collaboration between the City of Hobart and the University of Tasmania.

The project brings together talented graduates and undergraduates with Council’s professional staff to form cross disciplinary teams focussed on place-based problems.

The Lord Mayor presented the award to the meeting.

 

 

3.3      Bridge of Remembrance

 

At National level, the Bridge of Remembrance by Denton Corker Marshall received a commendation for Built Projects – Local and Neighbourhood Scale at the recent 2019 Australian Urban Design Awards held in Melbourne.

 

4.       Notification of Council Workshops

In accordance with the requirements of the Local Government (Meeting Procedures) Regulations 2015, the General Manager reports that no Council workshops have been conducted since the last ordinary meeting of the Council.

 

5.       Public Question Time

 

5.1      Mr Mervin Reed - Tolmans Hill Road connection from Woodcutters Drive to Caroline Street, Dynnyrne

 

Mr Mervin Reed put the following question and was provided with the corresponding response from the Lord Mayor:

Question:

The Tolmans Hill area is designated as a Fire Prone Zone, which in essence means the whole area is basically a fire danger zone of some substance.

 

As only one road exists into and out of this suburb, will you consider the connection of Tolmans Hill – Woodcutters Drive to Caroline Street in Dynnyrne? 

 

I understand this road is partly formed already.

 

It need not be an expensive exercise, but a reasonable gravel road that would be opened by Council on days of maximum fire danger to provide an alternative escape route from Tolmans Hill.

 

Would you be prepared to consider this option, and seek a short report on feasibility and costs?

Response:


The subdivision of properties to form the Tolman’s Hill Estate in the early 1990’s considered the need for public access to the City from Woodcutter’s Lane.  The result of that review was a “Right of Footway” along the edge of the Southern Outlet for pedestrians to traverse the boundary of 30 Caroline Street and have a shorter route to the CBD.

 

The issue of emergency egress was also considered with the initial proposal to utilise the Telstra Optic Fibre cable route dismissed as it came in very close proximity to the residence on 30 Caroline Street.  As a result an arrangement has been struck with the landholders that in an emergency the Tasmania Fire Service can open a route from Woodcutter’s Lane through to Caroline Street using the existing driveways to those residences on 30 and 32 Caroline Street. 

 

This arrangement fulfils the suggested need for an emergency egress route from the Eastern boundary of Tolman’s Hill and removes the need to further develop a route for emergency exit in a bushfire when it is considered safe to do so by the Tasmania Fire Service.

 

 

 

5.2      Mr Ben Lohberger - UTAS Pedestrian Bridges

 

Mr Lohberger put the following questions and was provided with the corresponding response from the Lord Mayor:

Questions:

Launceston City Council last week approved a new $5 million pedestrian bridge to connect the new UTAS campus in Launceston, which will be built at no cost to ratepayers in Launceston.

Meanwhile, Hobart City Council has spent $6.5 million of Hobart ratepayer's money on a new pedestrian bridge that directly connects two UTAS sites in Hobart - the Domain campus, and the medical science precinct.

Why did Hobart City Council ratepayers entirely fund the $6.5 million Hobart pedestrian bridge when UTAS clearly has the funds to pay for its own bridge?

Can HCC explain why UTAS paid for its own pedestrian bridge in Launceston while Hobart ratepayers have paid for a bridge that is obviously for the use of UTAS students in Hobart?

It is now six months since UTAS announced to the media that it would pay rates, or their equivalent, for its educational properties in Hobart. Has UTAS paid any rates, or rates equivalent payments, for these properties since making its announcement six months ago?

It is now 18 months since the May 2018 floods damaged the Central Avenue pedestrian bridge next to New Town High School, and it is six months since HCC told me that the rebuilding project had been put out to tender. There is still no sign of any reconstruction work on this much-used pedestrian bridge - can the Council please provide an update on the timeline for its reconstruction and reopening?

Response:

It is accurate to say the Hobart bridge falls adjacent to two University properties, but its intent is of far more wide reaching civic impact than that. The new bridge links the Central Business District and waterfront through to the aquatic centre, cenotaph, Soldiers' Memorial Avenue, sporting facilities on the Glebe and the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. It creates a more safe, family-friendly cycleway through to Cornelian Bay and beyond. The bridge has been an investment by the Council in creating a more active, cycling and pedestrian-friendly, healthier city. The need for the improved connection was first identified by Gehl Architects in their report for the Council in 2010 Public Space Public Life  - A City with People in Mind.  Gehl Architects recommendation was subsequently further progressed by the Council in 2011 with the adoption of the Inner City Action Plan which recommended a shared pedestrian and cycling bridge across Brooker Avenue from Bathurst Street.   The development of the bridge delivers on this recommendation. 

Our understanding is the pedestrian bridge in Launceston is being funded through the Northern Transformation Project, which is delivering a $300 million investment across northern Tasmania and is jointly funded by the University and all levels of government.  The shared bridge across Brooker Avenue as mentioned, is not a facility dedicated to the UTAS use but has much wider improved access objectives. 

The City of Hobart and University continue to work constructively together across a range of issues and look forward to updating the community on the issue of rates equivalency in due course.


In response to your last point, unfortunately there has been some delays with the pedestrian bridge next to the New Town High School. However I am pleased to advise, that works on the new bridge have commenced with fabrication of the bridge span being undertaken off site.

Onsite ground works will commence this month with the new bridge scheduled to be re-opened for public use by the end of January 2020.

All work required by this condition must be undertaken in accordance with the approved revised plans.

 

 

Advice: The draft plans 1811­DA20 rev F, 1811­DA24 rev D and 1811­DA28 rev F, which show a 1.0m high steel and textured/translucent glass screen on top of a 1.0m solid planter box, are considered to meet this condition. Alternative designs may be considered at building permit stage, in consultation with the eastern neighbour and Council's Cultural Heritage Officer.

 

 

Reason for condition

 

 

To provide reasonable opportunity for privacy for dwellings.

 

 

ENG sw1

 

 

All stormwater from the proposed development (including but not limited to: roofed areas, ag drains, retaining wall ag drains and impervious surfaces such as driveways and paved areas) must be drained to the Council’s stormwater infrastructure prior to first occupation or commencement of use (whichever occurs first).

 

 

Advice:

 

 

Under section 23 of the Urban Drainage Act 2013 it is an offence for a property owner to direct stormwater onto a neighbouring property.

 

 

 

Reason for condition

 

 

To ensure that stormwater from the site will be discharged to a suitable Council approved outlet.

Advice: Heritage condition HER 10 below has refused the two new parking spaces located between the 'main building' and Hampden Road. The three existing spaces located between the servants wing and Hampden Road (on the existing driveway) can remain. The number of approved spaces is therefore five in the rear and three in the front. Reducing the number of spaces between the servants wing and Hampden Road to two is also acceptable.

 

 

Reason for condition

 

 

To ensure the provision of parking for the use is safe and efficient.

 

 

ENG 1

 

 

Any damage to council infrastructure resulting from the implementation of this permit, must, at the discretion of the Council:

A photographic record of the Council’s infrastructure (e.g. existing property service connection points, roads, buildings, stormwater, footpaths, driveway crossovers and nature strips, including if any, pre­existing damage) will be relied upon to establish the extent of damage caused to the Council’s infrastructure during construction. In the event that the owner/developer fails to provide to the Council a photographic record of the Council’s infrastructure, then any damage to the Council's infrastructure found on completion of works will be deemed to be the responsibility of the owner.

 

Reason for condition

 

 

To ensure that any of the Council's infrastructure and/or site­related service

connections affected by the proposal will be altered and/or reinstated at the owner’s full cost.

Motions of which notice has been given

 

IN ACCORDANCE WITH REGULATION 16(5) OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT (MEETING PROCEDURES) REGULATIONS 2015

 

10.      Unleashing of Greyhounds in Designated Off Leash Area

            File Ref: F19/106384; 13-1-9

Ref:    Open PRC 7.1, 7/11/2019

 

Motion:

“That an Officer report be obtained for:

 

1.   The City of Hobart to lobby the State Government to table an amendment to the Dog Control Act 2000 s18, in a timely manner, to allow for greyhounds to be unleashed in a designated off leash area.

 

2.   The City of Hobart to lobby LGAT to support this amendment.

 

 

 

3.   Council officers to identify an appropriate piece of land to develop as a greyhound off leash area, to ensure that there is not an unnecessary delay when the amendment is passed and as a first step approach Tas Racing to ascertain if there is any scope to utilise current greyhound racing facilities for the exercising of non-racing greyhounds when not in use.”

 

 

Rationale:

“Animal welfare advocates have long had serious misgivings about the treatment of greyhounds, in the racing and gambling industries. The 2015 Animals Australia expose and ensuing inquiries, legislative changes and changes in community expectations, have led to people embracing greyhounds as pets to stem the numbers of animals killed, when the racing industry discards them.

In Tasmania, there are an estimated 2500 greyhounds as pets, with Brightside Farm Sanctuary and the Greyhound Adoption Program adopting out around 250 dogs a year.

Enabling legislation was required for people to lawfully adopt greyhounds as pets, as historically legislation had directed greyhounds to be muzzled, providing a psychological and legal barrier to greys being seen as potential family pets.

Muzzling greys suggested that they were dangerous and different. The reality is that greys were being muzzled because they had been live baited. Using small furry animals as lures meant that cats and other pets were fair game to a live baited greys and muzzling kept them from doing the very thing they had been trained to do.

What I hope this motion will achieve is the next step in inclusion for greys and their owners and the next stage in their freedom. 

We take registration fees from greyhound owners, therefore it follows that we should get ahead of the next legislative changes to allow greyhounds off leash in designated areas and show our community that we are a contemporary council which supports animal welfare, so that as soon as the legislative changes are through state parliament, we have the designated space ready to go.

The General Manager reports:

“In line with the Council’s policy in relation to Notices of Motion, I advise that the matter is considered to be within the jurisdiction of the Hobart City Council as it relates to the administration of the Dog Control Act 2000.”
